it's very important to know and see the solutions you know to not become trapped in that racial prison we are aware of instances where we're. black people being attacked and also i think it is members it must be pointed out that that part of the whole form for matecumbe form of phenomenon is the vulnerability of workers to pretend to be interviewed like and they've been instances where. black people abuse that loves to protect. to protect what i watch people under attack and vice versa as the case. we followed in the priest. and i've asked maidment shows no sign of relenting pressure on the french government with the fifteenth weekend of violent protests across the country one activist in paris had most of his hands blown off by a crowd control grenades. video agency recorded pay off some off

for common ground. you know world of big partisan movies. and conspiracy it's time to wait to dig deeper to get the stories that mainstream media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smarter we need to stop slamming the door on the shouting past each other it's time for critical thinking it's time to fight for the middle for the truth the time is now for watching closely watching the hawks.
welcome back to the program the both of online retail giant amazon is protesting the invasion of his privacy after us tabloid the national enquirer and naturally tried to blackmail him by threatening to leak nude photographs now it's the tabloids parents company rejects jeff bezos is claims it's all comes as a time when amazon this reportedly helping to develop state level surveillance systems don't quartette takes a look. it's blackmail for amazon c.e.o. jeff bezos who has threatened to have his nudes made public by the national enquirer but he chose to own up to it and publish the threat leaving his sympathizers to believe the whole thing was political somehow someone was trying to hit job government entity might have gotten hold of his text messages people who speculated that trump kind of aspect or to do this this was at least partially politically motivated back in two thousand and thirteen amazon signed
a six hundred million dollar contract with the cia to create a secret cloud server under amazon web services it was intended to pull classified data of seventeen intelligence agencies into one location and one web service has become an especially invasive surveillance technology the amazon videotape young is powered by learning based models providing video analysis of the object in scene detection face attention activity detection and safe content face recognition post and tracking amazon recognition was launched back in twenty seventeen claiming to recognize tens of millions of faces base so says the tech can't be used to criminally violate people's privacy however this strides towards a surveillance state has sparked serious protest amazon cannot simply escape responsibility by saying this cannot be used illegally it's you and i don't
know i don't think you can believe that we are under surveillance we can't even challenge that surveillance civil rights groups even found that amazon wanted to use doorbell cameras as a surveillance tool for police and immigration officials the american civil liberties union slammed to the whole system as all for a tarion. amazon is building the tools for authoritarian surveillance that advocates activists community leaders politicians and experts have repeatedly warned against even amazon's shareholders are now calling for an end to law enforcement's use of recognition perhaps spays also was just trying to make an easy buck but the writing is on the wall and many think that amazon c.e.o. is finally getting a taste of his own medicine there's a real irony in this that he's been caught sort of how he stood on his own petard as we say. a and his organization have a very tight link with the n.s.a.
the national security agency and has been helping them with their surveillance techniques so they're intimately connected with the whole surveillance state that the u.s. has been developing when you see something like this happening to one of the world's most powerful men and it should say to you wow if they can do that to him they certainly could be doing that to me and i wouldn't even know about it. but i can say sions a fake news being bandied about to have a mole by politicians and jan with is becoming increasingly hard to discern what is more to sent reliable information but help is at hand to slip it in philosophy. says his ideas on how to watch the news you can find links to that so naughty social media pages but here's a peek at the latest episode. what bothers people day is this dispersal uncontrollable scott you start something more on the internet and so on those who
fight you i think there are more bothered by this girl that the. facts are always on the right selected from a sucky stand and that's why the most dangerous news in the sense of law is a lot of weeks it lies on two facts it's not easy oh look you go to the yeah you go. and it will function of fake news they make us aware of how i think their id of. the truth. iranians are celebrating the fortieth anniversary of the islamic revolution rallies are being held in there for a thousand cities and towns people are paying tribute to the late founder of these remick republic the main event is into iran where there's

time after time so we're going underground on the fortieth anniversary of the iranian revolution two and a half decades after britain overthrew its democratically elected leader coming up remembering the revolution but what now for the nation the from persepolis to the palestinians has been synonymous with human civilization for thousands of years and coeditor with nobel laureate joe stiglitz and the un's jose antonio ocampo seventy griffin jones on what advice she's been giving u.k. shadow chancellor john mcdonnell for socialist u.k. government all the more coming up in today's going underground but first it was in
ninety fifty three that the nation celebrating revolution today had its government toppled by london washington and an oil company now part of b.p. why would winston churchill want to overthrow the iranian government do you think bizarrely c.n.n. one of the t.v. networks today being for the overthrow of the leader of another oil rich country venezuela understands a story the cia has released documents that show its role in the nine hundred fifty three that is the coup that toppled iran's democratically elected prime minister mohammad mosaddegh had moved to nationalize oil production and iran yes major nations tend to destabilize countries that nationalize or bring back industries and civic society under democratic control but the winston churchill was successful in installing a brutal dictator along with death squads in iran and they do nations world would be defeated by the iranian revolution of nine hundred seventy nine not that the u.s. and u.k. didn't stop trying margaret thatcher's pal ronald reagan began to supply us saddam
hussein with weapons to attack iran with saddam's massacres against his own people there were term procul hundred thousand people. us didn't object in fact the reagan administration blocked efforts in congress even to protest against and furthermore the support for saddam increased and continued in fact saddam was given an extraordinary privilege remarkable he was allowed he got away with attacking a u.s. naval vessel and killing thirty seven soldiers if the u.s. didn't even seem to mind having its own soldiers killed by the leader which future pentagon boss donald rumsfeld delivered w n d to iraq but iran wasn't defeated in the iran iraq war by the time rumsfeld was helping tony blair destroy iraq iran is role in the region was significantly strengthened with allies in the international nonaligned movement it most recently sent emergency supplies just saved.
